spiritawardLast night the Independent Spirit Awards were held. It was live, uncut, uncensored, with no commercials (unlike tonight’s Oscar presentations). It was vastly entertaining. I did not vote for Mickey Rourke to win tonight, but it sure would be delightful if he did.

Here are last night’s winners:
Best Feature: Darren Aronofsky, The Wrestler
Best Director: Tom McCarthy, The Visitor
Best Actor: Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler
Best Actress: Melissa Leo, Frozen River
Best Supporting Actor: James Franco, Milk
Best Supporting Actress: Penelope Cruz, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Best Screenplay: Woody Allen, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Best First Screenplay: Dustin Lance Black, Milk
Best First Feature: Charlie Kaufman, Synecdoche, New York
John Cassavetes Award: In Search of a Midnight Kiss
Best Cinematography: Maryse Alberti, The Wrestler
Best Foreign Language Film: The Class
Best Documentary: Man on Wire
Someone to Watch Award: Lynn Shelton, My Effortless Brilliance
Piaget Producers Award: Heather Ray, Frozen River
Truer Than Fiction: Margaret Brown, The Order of Myths
Robert Altman Ensemble Award: Synecdoche, New York

Mickey Rourke’s acceptance speech was extremely entertaining. Penelope Cruz’ acceptance speech was also hilarious but I cannot find it to share.
